How Did You Find Me?



Hello everyone,
I know I'm all over the internet. Yet sometimes I wonder how people find me. On twitter I'm betwittered by people whom I'd never meet or maybe somebody that just left the ATM before I got there. Some people I've met from Etsy groups like EAOC. Then I've found groups through twitter. Interesting!

How do I find people? I go to my friend's friends. I don't like calling people followers because I'd lead everyone to pitbull puppies and dreadlocks.

If you twitter, then how did you start twittering? How did you find me? How do you work twitter?

If you know of Tomoka's Twists, then how did you find out about them?

I've checked my twitter rank on twitter.grader.com and felt ashamed when it was 39. Do you check yours? If you do you try to figure out how to make it higher? I did, now I just check it when newer tweeple tweet about it.

Take care everyone,
Carmen!

i started using twitter after browsing a discussion thread on etsy. at first i wasn't sure how it could benefit me, but right away i noticed an increase in my blog traffic & views in my shop. i've also been able to connect with a lot of folks locally.

i may talk about some things in my personal life, but i'm using twitter to let folks know what's going on with b.flywears & share things i come across on the web that i find inspiring or interesting.

Hey Carmen,
I know I saw your wares back when I was a natural product junkie. :) I am still natural but no longer a junkie. I love your products and need to buy some of your twist for my girls. I believe you found me on twitter and I have started following you.

Hello dcyrill, thank you for dropping and commenting. I did follow you because a follower of mine...you know. LOL. See on twitter!

I jsut started on Twitter a couple of days ago after I heard about in the Etsy forum. I found you on Twitter by searching the term "crochet".

CarmenNC said...

Sue, how cool is that, I searched for hair as in hair accessories. A man was talking about his hair implants. I crochet at a beginner's level, nothing I would ever try to make money from, lol. Thank you for sharing!

I found out about Tomoka's Twists from Afrobella, then bought some Twists myself, and blogged about them. That's how I found you!

Carmen

I'm fairly new to twitter but find it insanely addicting. I tend to follow interesting comments, end up at a profile, follow another comment, see a link in a profile and here I am. I'm always amazed where I end up. :)

CarmenNC said...

erykah - come back - I will look into trying some fancy pins in the meantime try http://wainbows.etsy.com
